About "Township Tango 1"
The photograph from which this painting was made, was taken while driving past Zandspruit on the M5, Johannesburg. The motion blur inspired me to paint the scene.
BENJAMIN MITCHLEY. I was born in South Africa, in 1967, and studied fine arts in 1985 to 1987 at the Vaal University of Technology and Tshwane University of Technology. I'm a full-time freelance fine artist, scenic artist, illustrator and 2D digital animator. In my latest works I depict scenes of everyday life, from photographs I capture in my surroundings. It is important for me to capture a moment to the best of my ability, and this moment I leave up to the viewer to Interpret. I continue to search for new ideas and experiment with new techniques, styles and media. I specialize, collaborate and do commissions in oil and acrylic painting, traditional and digital illustration and 2D digital animation. I furthered my scenic experience creating murals, backdrop and faux techniques while working on industrial theming, stage and film projects. Awards and Competitions: 2012 Vuleka competition, SA Art Times Merit Award. Iheed Animation 1st place Award, Oct. 2013.
